Risk Communicating Resources for Rural Areas: A Toolkit to help rural public health clinics communicate their message to the community during an emergency or disaster.

A perceived gap within the National Association of County & City Health Officials (NACCHO), Advance Practice Center (APC) resource library is the limited number of risk communication resources in general and the omission of risk communication tools designed specifically for rural areas. Additionally, many useful risk communication tools and strategies are embedded in mammoth risk communication plans. This project sets as its goal to put comprehensive, accessible, and ready-to-use materials in the hands of local health department frontline staff to improve communication efforts, placing particular emphasis on challenges encountered in rural settings. While Public Information Officers or Risk Communicators may find the toolkit of particular interest, the project in scope, level of detail, ease of use and format is targeted for use among county health department nurse managers, supervisors and other public health staff.

This project was developed by the Southeast Health District, a 16-county Public Health district located in Southeast Georgia. It was funded by an Innovative Solutions in Public Health Preparedness Grant awarded by the National Association of County and City Health Officials (NACCHO, Advance Practice Center (APC).
